I hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday. Sorry for the lack of posts. I spent a week in Paris, not for work but for a holiday! Now I'm always in Paris for work and I never actually get to explore and take the city during the day due to work and running around like a headless chicken. When it comes to the evening I just absorb the night life with my boys (actually that is pretty blissful). So now me and the boyfriend have made a little tradition every year of going to Paris for a week during the August bank holiday for Rock En Seinewhich is a brilliant music festival, more on that later! We had an amazing week, and I really wanted to share with you all my experience at the oldest patisserie in Paris...Stohrer.
The patisserie is laced with so much history, it started in 1725 and you can really feel the history in the area with the cobbled streets and local businesses. We left of to the last day as we wanted a lavish treat to take back to London. And god it really was a treat. I cannot express how amazing it was. I walked away with 3 cakes, a pain au chocolate and a chocolate donut and I have no regrets admitting that! The only regret I have is not buying more!
I loved the outfit I chose for the day. I found these amazing Chanel like jogging bottoms from H&M in Paris and loved the mix blend of grey and pink so much I got the grey pair also. I paired it with my awesome vintage Givenchy tux jacket which I found in Paris the last time I was there, this amazing pink casual top from Primark (seriously so so soft!), my trusty Chanel backpack (honestly I don't know what I would of done without it in my life. Major game changer!) and my new buy 3 days into the holiday, mySaint Laurent fang print skaters (from the mens collection. Probably the best thing about having size 41 feet!). This was on my shopping list pre heading to london as they sold so quickly in the uk and my feet were aching so much from wearing my chloe boots all day Friday for day 1 of the festival. So I thought why not wear them to the festival? They are sneakers, they're not just shoes to stare at and they are comfortable. Oh and of course they went with everything I had! I was a little scared as I knew they would get dusty quick but hey nothing a few wet wipes can't fix after. I really took to them that I wore them the Saturday, Sunday and home on Wednesday. I can happily say they are so worth it, and unbelievably comfy!
I cannot wait to share the rest of my style diary with you guys from this trip along with my extra special purchases.
